Initial Descent: May 22 – 28, 2022

Mournful Congregation

Another week, another list of new metal… to which, we rejoice! I know, I know, it’s Monday and that’s a bit too much excitement. However, who doesn’t get excited over new metal? I mean, that’s about all we have anymore. Anywho, get your frowns on for a moment and welcome the new outing from Mournful Congregation (I kid, it’s good), next up is a war machine of deathgrind from Holocausto Canibal, then we’ve got an epic heavy metal effort from Gengis Khan, a rockin’ good time from Besvärjelsen, and a bloated list of many other hits to empty your wallets and blast what’s left of your hearing.
